P-38 LIGHTNING Video... Awesome!

Recommended Posts

He had almost all of his time on this olive drab P-38.

There was another one that was restored at the same time and it was a silver painted one.  He died while flying that one the first time...

Haha, that's the same plane I saw at Tillamook, Oregon years ago, before they moved it to the museum at Madras with the rest of the Erickson Collection. I got to take all kinds of closeup pics of it, because they would let you do anything but climb on it back in those days. It was named "Tangerine" sometime after this video was made.
